Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization(IASTM)
The concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcomes. Until now, choices were limited if you wanted instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) to integrate into your patient/athlete care. IASTM intervention strategies may also be combined with kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a comprehensive approach to patient care.
Benefits of IASTM include but are not limited to:
Decrease in Pain
Improvement in range of motion
Decrease in swelling
Improved healing time with soft tissue
